New ‘Bachelor’ Peter Weber Rushed To Hospital After Injuring Face In ‘Freak Accident’
ABC’s Bachelor star Peter Weber suffered a serious injury yesterday, while filming the show in Costa Rica.
The 28-year-old was rushed to the hospital after splitting his head open during a golf game, requiring him to get 22 stitches.
Chris Harrison, the show host said in the statement, “Peter suffered a freak accident. He got a cut on his head, he did get stitches but he’s 100 percent OK and production is already back underway. He’s still the dashing, handsome pilot we’ve all dreamed of.”
Weber was announced as the bachelor-to-be for season 24 last month after finishing third in Hannah Brown’s explosive season of The Bachelorette.
Weber opened up about the opportunity last month during the finale of Bachelor in Paradise.
“This is life-changing. I have truly, my entire life, looked forward to finding my girl, and that person that I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with,” said the Delta pilot. “I’ve had the most amazing example of my parents, growing up, and I feel like the luckiest kid ever. I saw so much love in my household, and just 30 some odd years later now, they’re that much in love with each other.”
The new season is expected to premiere in January 2020 on ABC.
